Southeast Minnesota Construction Law Attorneys

At the Rochester law firm of Doda & McGeeney, our lawyers represent owners, developers, general contractors, subcontractors and materials suppliers on a wide range of construction matters in commercial, residential, and public projects. Contact our law firm for dependable advice and representation on your next construction project.

Our goal is to protect your interests at every stage from initial negotiation and review of the contract to litigation of defect or warranty claims. At the front end, we can review the project and your contract to make sure that your risk is limited to matters that will remain within your control, and that the insurance of other participants will be sufficient to keep your risk low. For developers and general contractors, that will normally mean that you are named as an additional insured on every other participant's policy. For subcontractors and suppliers, that means that your role is clearly defined, that your own insurance covers your risks, and that your rights to defense and indemnification are not too narrowly conditioned.

We anticipate and work to resolve such construction project considerations as the following:

  • Public contracting requirements under state or federal law
  • Mechanic's liens and payment bonds
  • Negotiation of subcontracts and materials purchases
  • Employment problems that can develop during the project
  • Bid disputes on public projects

Our experience with construction law allows us to represent contractors on public infrastructure projects such as highways, schools and cable installation as well as more conventional private development.

We also advise and represent clients in litigation on issues ranging from foreclosure to enforce a lien to declaratory judgment actions to define your rights under an insurance policy in defense of defect or warranty claims.
